Upgrades include the installation of a large-format high-definition digital-projection system in the 114-seat theater, a new historical walkway highlighting American Airlines' Flagship Service program and a redesign of the museum's History Circle.
The exhibit spans the airline's history from the 1920s to the present, and includes interactive activities and oral history stations where more than 50 airline employees and retirees share their stories. The museum is also home to the restored Flagship Knoxville, a 1930s-era American Airlines DC-3. Named for aviation pioneer and long-time American Airlines leader C.R. Smith, the museum has had 1.1 million visitors since opening in 1993.
